Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2012 Grand Cherokee hasn’t seen the same complaint volume as the 2011, at least not yet.

It’s worth noting both model years are part of a class-action lawsuit that focuses on a defective TIPM and a long wait for replacement parts.

The 2012 also received national attention after it failed a Sweedish Magazine’s “moose test”. the test measures a vehicle’s ability to swerve out of the way of an obstacle you wouldn’t want to hit while driving down the road … like a moose.

I received a safety recall last spring for P14/NHTSA 14V-154-brake booster. I made an appointment to have the brakes inspected May 5, 2014. At that time the dealer did not have the parts (water shield) to place over the brake booster. I just spoke with the dealer service department today (9/9/14) and they still do not have the part nor do they have any idea when they will have the preventative part. If this issue is of no concern then why was a safety recall issued? if it is of concern (and I might add we are headed into the coldest and rainiest time of year here) then why are there no parts available to preempt a known safety hazard? having had other vehicles that had safety recalls and dealing with different manufacturers, I never had to wait over 5 months for a safety recall replacement part. I believe that the Chrysler corporation has dropped the ball and the potential expense of my families safety. For this I am placing a formal complaint!

I have been waiting for my local Jeep dealer to fix a safety recall notice related to a brake booster on my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I've been waiting since May. This is unacceptable! I have a 7-months-pregnant wife, and how am I supposed to feel she is safe and secure in a car which could potentially have a brake issue" now, fast forward to September and I've received another recall notice, this one pertaining to sun visor wiring. How long should we be required to wait for these to be fixed" I've had recalls on my 2010 Mercury mariner and 2005 Mazda tribute recently, and both were handled immediately. So I would very specifically like to lodge a complaint against Chrysler and its parent, Fiat. Local dealers need to be supplied with replacement parts far more quickly. (and, for the record, I've owned five Jeep. I'm loyal to the brand, which is all the more reason why this is upsetting.) the dealer isn't helpful at all - all they tell us is that we're in a queue and waiting on parts. It's enough waiting. This is a safety issue that must be alleviated immediately.

I've called Dodge nielson in East hanover, NJ 07936 back in June to bring my car in for a part. I received a letter in the mail few weeks prior in regards to a safety recall "brake booster". it is now September and they have told me no parts have been received. Winter is right around the corner and this specific part is quite important in the winter months coming. I am getting worried with timing. Please advise.
